The OSTRC promotes out-of-school time (OST) student achievement by supporting staff and enriching programs. To that end, it:

Identifies and coordinates professional development resources and opportunities. The OSTRC maintains a Listserv, a website, several Resource Directories, and an e-mail/telephone helpline. In addition, the OSTRC spearheads efforts to synchronize area trainings, foster inter-program communication, and integrate resources from other professions.

Provides existing research on, and technical assistance for, professional development. The OSTRC uses empirical research and promising practices to improve professional development implementation. The OSTRC also combines quantitative and qualitative instruments to measure the impact of professional development efforts.

Recommends changes in professional development practice and policy.  Through brokering, consulting, research, and publications, we inform and advocate for high-quality staff and programs on a local, regional, and national level.
